My Hillsville Adventure!

We was there for 5 whole minutes and my husband already knocked something over!
The owner of the stuff my husband knocked over, looked like he wanted to kill us!
We walked off and the man said, "Where's my man?" My hubs turned around and went back and helped him look for "his man" and he found it! Thank God! The owner shook my hubs hand and we went on our merry way. Tell you the truth I was ready to RUN!

So, there's not many pics of this trip. Plus, people had signs up that said no pictures. I wasn't in the mood to have death stares again. I know last year at the Christmas Show a man went all ape sheet on me for taking pictures. I personally don't get it. 

My dad is a vendor at this show.
 He sells these crazy birdhouses.
Which reminds me,
I need to call him.

What did I bring home?

3 yard flags for $10.00! 
Awesome price!

Smaller size galvanized tub $6.00
Smaller sized watering can $12.00

Vintage Halloween picks $1.00 each.

My personal favorite find, this creepy old doll head!
Will be perfect for my Halloween decorating!
Only $6.00! The cracks and eyes are just perfect!

It was fun and I'm still recovering! 
They don't call that place Hillsville for nothing! 
I hope you guys are doing well!

Another crazy adventure to add to my list!

This looks like a great place to be. I love your tub, watering can and fall flag. Great finds!!! Now, the doll head, ooooh weeee, I don't know if I would have had the nerve to bring that thing home with me, lol. It is a little spooky looking.

Looks like you got some great bargains especially the dolls head....creepy...lol...

Charlotte said...

Looks like fun! I agree with you about taking photos. The majority of people wanting to take a photo does not want it to make money. We want to use it in our blog!! Another pet peeve of mine is not sharing patterns or recipes!

I want to come to your flea markets! They always look like so much fun! And that doll head is scary as heck, LOL! I can't wait to show my dh :)

Becca said...

What FUN ... love your finds (especially the galvenized tub); however, I must admit ... scary doll head. LOL

Kelly said...

Looks like you found alot of neat stuff! I always hate when I see signs that won't allow pictures. I don't understand why they do that. It's not like they're the secret service! Ha! Those Halloween cake pics look very familiar to me because my birthday is on Halloween. I still get a cake decorated in that theme every year. It is so much fun. Keeps me feeling young.
